It's been a wet and stormy 24 hours in Central Indiana. In fact, the 1.82" rainfall in Indianapolis since midnight is a new daily rainfall record for the city... and the wettest day since the 1.83" that fell on June 10th. The rain today is over half the monthly average for Indianapolis.

A byproduct of the early morning storms is less instability for severe weather this evening. So we're only expecting a slight chance of a thunderstorm between now and 11pm.

An approaching upper piece of energy provides better lift to the region around midnight... when we're expecting scattered downpours and storms to increase overnight. At this time we don't expect these storms to be severe...though frequent lightning may wake you up.

Humid air hangs around the rest of the week and keeps a daily a chance of downpours and storms. Thursday ultimately is the driest the day from start to finish before a well-advertised upper low arrives this weekend.

This feature triggers scattered to numerous downpours and storms Friday into Monday afternoon. Check back for updates - Sean Ash
